I wandered over to Shoebunny’s place, because I knew she’d have scores of shots of celebrities in fabulous — and fabulously expensive — footwear to see, throwing in the occasional Birkenstock to see if we’re paying attention, and for a moment there I was wondering if maybe I’d been thrown a curve: a shoe I could not see without a lot of graphic filters.
Okay, I have less-than-stellar vision. And a scroll-down showed the shoe, in another shade, without a background. (Louboutins; sold out at Neiman’s at the moment; priced, well, like Louboutins.) But the shoe by itself doesn’t do the fadeaway effect quite so well, so I went looking for another picture. Beyoncé to the rescue:
Yes, it’s Sasha Fierce herself at courtside, watching the Knicks put up token resistance to the Heat. (Jay-Z’s kicks are no slouches themselves.) I don’t think these pants — apparently Elson by A. L. C. — are all that wonderful, but it’s not like she has to take advice from the likes of me; cameras love Beyoncé, and I don’t blame them in the least.
(And yes, I do know that she cut a track called “Disappear,” on the Sasha Fierce album. Things are already meta enough.)
